EXAMS

Exam description

Attendance students will take two written texts; the first one in December 2017, on the first semester program, the second in May 2018, on the second semester program. Texts will be on lectures, integrated by depth-in specific topics and by the materials used for the lectures (you can find it on aulaweb).

Final mark will be the average of marks taken in the two texts, but the professor can rise it up in cases of very good performances.

For in employment students there will be an oral test (based on textbook) on the exam sessions indicated.

To attend the exam, it is mandatory to enroll (at least 48h before the session) following the Athenaeum on-line process.
